OptoSono :: Arcángel Constantini
A sound instrument based on the principle of the optical sound of cinematography, the work of Norman McLaren, and Graham Bell.
Opto Sono is an analogous sequencer system that uses a pair of photocells and custom build preamplifiers that transform the luminance phenomena into electricity and this in sound, the transformed and amplified energy find unusual ways when making short circuits by means of corporal resistance.
Your line or mine :: Moniker
An interactive installation in the Stedelijk Museum comprised of three continually changing crowd sourced animations drawn entirely by the museum’s visitors. Visitors are invited to take part by contributing with their own drawings. They grab a sheet of paper from the coloured stack, draw following the instructions on the paper, and scan their drawing. Once scanned, their drawing automatically becomes a frame in one of the animations projected in the space.
The team at Moniker first developed the skeleton animations and split them up into frames to print on sheets of A4 paper. Each piece of paper has a number of dots and an instruction on how to connect them. Some are easy, some are complex. Some instructions leave almost no space for interpretation, some leave it completely up to the user. In a way the instructions act as a programming language and the visitors as Graphical Processing Units.
